Veteran actor Shashi Kapoor received the Dadasaheb Phalke Award, the highest honour in Indian Cinema. Guests at the ceremony included not just his family but also several former co-stars.
Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Arun Jaitley presented the award Mr Kapoor, star of over 175 films over a 40-long-year career. Ranbir and Rishi Kapoor made introductions as the ceremony begun. Rishi Kapoor, the actor’s nephew, spoke about being directed by his uncle in Ajooba. He revealed that Shashi Kapoor was the only director who kept his actors in check on set with a stick – an anecdote that received instant and hearty endorsement from Amitabh Bachchan, who also starred in Ajooba. Rishi Kapoor also quoted his uncle’s famous dialogue from Deewar – “mere paas ma hain.”
